Despite the broad support of the world Communist and workers parties, the persecution of the leader of Ukrainian Communists and their Petro Symonenko continues. In addition to yesterday's 7-hour interrogation of  Petro Symonenko and four of our comrades, the Security service of Ukraine calls for questioning his wife Oksana Vashchenko and other members of his family. There is no doubt that this way the authorities are trying to silence the only political force defending the rights of workers in Ukraine and its leader.
